In late February/early March 2007, Agrusso read the Internet news that the films based on the DC Comics characters The Flash and Wonder Woman both lost their directors due to creative differences with Warner Brothers on the same day. In contrast, several future films based on Marvel Comics characters were in production. He later saw a “Get a Mac” commercial, which inspired him to parody the contrasting levels of success between Marvel and DC film productions.
Agrusso first wrote the scripts for four videos, using two characters, Spider-Man (Marvel) and Superman (DC), as their companies’ representatives. After posting two videos in March 2007, Agrusso posted six more videos in the subsequent months.
In the summer of 2008, five superhero movie blockbusters opened: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Hancock, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and The Dark Knight. In response, Agrusso created a second “Hi, I’m a Marvel” series, this time with Iron Man (Marvel), the Hulk (Marvel), Batman (DC), and Hellboy (Dark Horse) instead of Spider-Man and Superman. The series spanned the summer as the new superhero movies opened.
In February 2009, Agrusso was again hired by the New York Comic Con organization to make promotional videos for their event.
